(From the Campus Construction Update for March 9-15) Half Acre Gym remains open and accessible via the west entrance. The day-lot parking area and roadway immediately east of Half Acre Gym is closed. Temporary day-use parking has been established in the lot east of the Wyoming Union.
Construction work for Phase I, consisting of the reconstruction of the east portion of the existing building continues this week. Construction and staging areas north, south, and east of the existing building have been established and are closed to all vehicular and pedestrian traffic, except that which is construction related. Access to Prexy's Pasture from the east Wyoming Union parking lot between Half Acre and the Wyoming Union is closed until further notice. Please use alternate routes through the Wyoming Union or between the Union and Coe Library. Temporary staging/construction areas also may be established, with limited notice, near the west entrance and along the pedestrian pathways north of Half Acre Gym and between Prexy's Pasture and Willett Drive as required by the ongoing construction-related tasks.
During March 13-23, construction to access and tap existing water and chilled water utilities will again involve portions of the pedestrian sidewalk between Half Acre Gymnasium and McWhinnie Hall. Temporary provisions will be in place to maintain pedestrian pathways around the area of excavation, including maintaining a route of accessibility. Willett Drive in the vicinity of Wyoming Hall may be congested by construction traffic during the period of utility work.
Structural steel erection is progressing on the Phase I east reconstruction portion of the project. Steel erection will continue on the project through early March, raising the building frame from south to north to its full three-story height. First-floor under slab and slab-on-grade construction, as well as decking and concrete placement of upper floors, will continue as weather and erection sequence allow.
From Wednesday, March 12, through Friday, March 14, delivery and staging of significant structural components of the project will potentially cause periodic and short-term traffic delays on 15th Street and along the perimeter of the Wyoming Union parking lot. Heavy truck traffic, including structural steel transport, concrete trucks, earth-moving equipment and other haulers, will continue to be frequent on Willett Drive west of 15th Street and along the perimeter of the Union parking lot. Temporary traffic controls and signage are either in place or will be established as needed by specific site activities. Please observe all posted traffic control, construction signage, and temporary flagging.
